We love discovering gems on our own doorstep and love to shout about independent businesses – Prick London ticks both boxes.
They may be fully sold out right now (except for books!) but it’s testament to the great product. Keep an eye on the site for new stock coming and you can fill your home with beautiful cacti and succulents.
Due to current circumstances their Hackney store is closed but the website is open and hopefully soon stocked with gorgeous greenery!
PRICK – LONDON’S FIRST CACTUS SHOP

PRICK SEES CACTI AND SUCCULENTS AS LIVING SCULPTURES THAT TAKE YEARS TO FULLY DEVELOP. STORE FOUNDER GYNELLE LEON EXPLAINS, “THEY ARE A BEAUTIFUL AND SUSTAINABLE WAY TO TRANSFORM ANY INTERIOR. DUE TO THEIR LOW MAINTENANCE AND HARDY NATURE, THEY’RE WELL SUITED TO MODERN CITY LIVING.”.
The power and impact of large scale art in a room is great. Make a statement or bring a strong colour or theme to a room with a huge print. It’s generally a fairly expensive thing to aquire but US online store, Sycamore Street Press, amongst the range of other fab paper goods and homeware, have the super idea of offering downloadable digital PDFs of brilliant photographic prints that can be printed yourself at your local printers to whatever size (up to 48” x 36” – which is huge)
We absolutely love this way of bringing the outdoors in, with their print range of cactus photographs. Fresh natural images taken from the cactus garden in Huntingdon, Pasedena (California) which create a airy feel and evoke the feeling of the outdoors – allowing the natural world inside and are almost window-like when hung. Either frame, stick or use hanging bars for these huge pieces of art.
The growing (no pun intended) trend of the ‘urban jungler’ is quite literally growing. Homeware and interiors brands are offering a wide and trend-aware range of indoor gardening, house-plant accessories. Materials popular at the moment including marble, metallics and woods have found there way into design of pots, planters, ledges and dishes, that can be used for your growing collation of indoor planting.
Danish brand, Ferm Living, the gorgeous Scandivian interiors design store, are leaders in beautiful indoor pots and planters, with a range of products with strong design, great materials and perfect colour palette.
This powder coated iron plant stand is minimal and perfect with its clean lines. It could stand alone or pair up with its smaller counter part.

We love this planter and storage pot combo from Graham and Green. A stylish desktop accessory made from solid concrete, with a base for keeping stationery and a hollow pot above.
